Wednesday November 10 Jumps Racing Tips from Naas, Huntingdon and Bangor-on-Dee

Plenty of interesting action going over fences Tuesday: we’ve got quality action coming from Naas, Bangor-on-Dee and Huntingdon in addition to the usual assortment of all-weather nonsense.

1:15 at Naas

Looks like we’ll be having to contend with some heavy going over the course of the day and that really opens things up for 7 year-old John Joseph Murphy charge THE BUCK. He is fresh off a Cork victory when sent off at a solid 9/1 and kept on well over the 2m4f. He’s well-rated against some rather indifferent company and we expect a good price at the off. Well-weighted at 11-1, he tends to handle trouble well and looks able to match this group if given an error-free trip.

1:40 at Bangor-on-Dee

Despite the small field this is probably one of the classiest races of the day as we have a number of multiple graded winners at various points in their careers set to square off in this one. Sixth-place Cheltenham Gold Cup finisher Calgary Bay takes another drop down in class to attempt to get that elusive first score of the season after two forgettable runs at Cheltenham and Wetherby.

Normally you’d fancy him here but it’s going to be tough to deal with the other three contenders. A clean trip will be essential here and nobody looks more likely to pull this off than Tony McCoy and ROCK NOIR who looks a quality chaser at this point in his career. We’ve bet and won on Atouchbetweenacara before but the Venetia Williams charge just hasn’t been good value for money over the past while and struggled to finish a race towards the end of last season.

He probably needs the race here and will have his eye on other fixtures. Rock Noir was a grade 1 winner at 4 and has run second and first in his only runs of this season. His Cheltenham run back during the festival was forgettable but him and AP look to be forging a solid partnership and they’ll be looking to get one over some of the veterans here.  

1:50 at Huntingdon

Six year-old Jonjo O’Neill charge VICTORY SURGE looks the selection here and he comes in looking for his third on the bounce. He won’t have AP aboard for this one today but Richie McLernon and Victory Surge teamed up at Bangor-on-Dee back in August to conquer a handicap chase at just over 3m.

He’s been well-campaigned and comes up against two making their seasonal debuts while Darn Hot looks to be the biggest upset contender here having just been gunned down at the finish by Roseneath. This one should be interesting but Victory Surge should tackle this crowd barring any major mistakes.

2:10 at Bangor-on-Dee

We’ve got a solid race set to go at 2:10 and a number of punters will likely be siding with the big name in this race but Kilbeggan Blade just has not been consistent enough to merit a wager. He’s run in some high-quality races but he’s struggled to find results and likely won’t go off at a decent price.

We’ll be siding with JIMBATAI in this one as he was a close second last time out when made an error on the last fence at Uttoexeter when getting pipped by David Pipe’s quality 4 year-old Frosted Grape. Jimbatai scored here two races back at 2m4f and looked to have more in the tank so he should stay the distance.

2:15 at Naas

This one is arguably one of the trickier numbers on the race card today but we’re stickingour necks out for a punt on STAYING ARTICLE who is fresh off a maiden score at Punchestown a few weeks back where he absolutely destroyed an INH Stars of Tomorrow race. He jumps right into maiden hurdle company and should go off at an impressive price. He has only a single race under his belt but handled it with aplomb. It will be interesting to see how he handles the going, but it should have settle down a bit by this point in the day.

2:50 at Huntingdon

This one is a pretty straightforward selection as we've got a talented Grade 1 runner taking on novice chase company as Alan King's MEDERMIT looks set to make another statement about his Arkle chances come festival time. There isn't much in way of quality lining up against him, although Harry Tricker has been known to put in some very quality shifts. Medermit, on his day, is head and shoulders above this field so it could wind up being a race for second place and a Medermit/Harry Tricker forecast looks the selection. 

3:15 at Naas

Noel Meade brings a tidy 5 year-old into the mix here with ORIGINAL OPTION looking a great bet to score in the second to last fixture of the day at Naas. This is going to be a tough 3m slog but stepping down in grade after a runner-up slot in a Grade 3 contest at Cork last week gives him an extra bit of confidence here. He’s never finished outside the top 3 and took a score in his maiden over heavy ground at Limerick. There is a jockey change from Pat Carberry to David Condon but that’s no disincentive here.
